Consulting & Development

Our expert advice guarantees customized, future-proof solutions for device integration, always in line with the latest FDT technology trends such as FITS™.

DTM Expertise

We develop DTMs for field devices and communication components quickly and efficiently based on our proven development platforms dtmMANAGER and basicDTM.

As an official test laboratory of the FDT Group, we offer comprehensive DTM testing and certification.

Our FDT / DTM Products

01

fdtCONTAINER OEM

With the fdtCONTAINER OEM application you can quickly develop your own FDT frame application with your own branding. It is established, cost-effective and future-proof, offering maximum interoperability with certified DTMs and thus avoiding problems in use. The licensing model is simple, with a one-time branding fee and a fixed annual distribution fee, with no ongoing licensing costs or memberships.

fdtCONTAINER component

The fdtCONTAINER component is a specially designed software component for integrating FDT technology into existing or new applications. It provides an encapsulated environment that fully supports the FDT specification, allowing for smooth integration. The FDT Group recommends the fdtCONTAINER component as an official "common component" for FDT framework applications.

03

dtmMANAGER development suite

With the dtmMANAGER development suite, developers can focus directly on the device model without having to worry about the FDT specification. It is efficient because it simplifies the creation of the device model, flexible because it can be adapted to individual requirements, stable because it complies with the FDT specification, and resource-saving because of its optimized architecture. Comprehensive documentation and support for developers is also provided.

04

dtmINSPECTOR

The dtmINSPECTOR performs all certification-relevant tests largely automatically. Once a DTM has successfully passed the dtmINSPECTOR test, obtaining the official certificate is just a formality. Used during development, the dtmINSPECTOR ensures FDT conformity and avoids costly rework. Thanks to its flexible design, it supports all DTM types and communication protocols.

05

basicDTM

Starting from a device description file (EDD), we generate a DTM in a very short time. It doesn't matter if a device "speaks" HART, Profibus or Foundation Fieldbus - basicDTM covers all three protocols.

basicDTM is cost-effective, easy to use with checklist-based information retrieval, fast with automated processes, and flexible with room for customization. A complete package with EDD creation is also available.
